I talked to some tech. today who told me the problem wasn't my printer but was my computer. He wanted me to buy a service package from him for $100. My son doesn't agree with him. You are confident that my problem is my printer, correct?
I've only had it for six months. I'm anxious to try your suggestions, but will wait until tomorrow for my son to help me. Thank you so much for your help.
